Writer Mairghread Scott (Batgirl) and artist Ornella Savarese reveal the hidden origins of the Sunnydale Hellmouth in a story about a young Indigenous American woman at the turn of the 19th Century who finds out she is the Chosen One and makes a decision that changes the course of Slayer history forever! Celia Lowenthal (Over The Garden Wall: Hollow Town) tells the story of the young 14th century Italian Slayer from her BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #2 variant cover. And, from Alexa Sharpe (Rolled and Told), we discover the origins of the Slayer from the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #6 variant cover, in a story set in Napoleonic France.
